Following the 39-10 route of the Vikings, three Bears are being recognized for their stellar performances.

The Greatest Of All Time, Devin Hester, has won his eleventh NFC special teams player of the week for the second time in three weeks. Hester returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, returned a punt 27 yards to set up a field goal and caught five passes for a season-high 91 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown from Jay Cutler.

Cutler and defensive tackle Stephen Paea have both been nominated for weekly awards as well.

Cutler is up for FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week honors. He completed 21 of 31 passes for 267 yards with two touchdowns, no interceptions and a 115.9 passer rating.

In his first NFL game, Paea has been nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors after sacking Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb for a safety.

You can vote for Cutler and Paea until Friday 11a.m. CT.
